Featured Projects

Literature and its Multiple Identities, 1900-1950 is a GOA (Orchestrated Research Action) awarded to MDRN by the Research Council of the University of Leuven. This project studies the multiple functions, histories and mediatisations of writing in the modernist period.

Remembering the City of Life: The Literary Memory of the Occupation of Fiume (1919-2015) is funded by FWO. It studies how the occupation, led by poet Gabriele D’Annunzio, of the town of Fiume (now Rijeka, Croatia) has been represented in literary works from 1919 till the present day.
